Searching the Catalogue

Our shelf numbers begin with G, GO for oversize works and GR for reference works.

Most of our books and periodicals can be found in Primo. Some of our older books and periodicals are not yet in Primo. Specific Bills, Acts and Regulations are not in Primo, except for consolidated editions of Acts.. Please ask at our Reference Desk if you need legislation.


If you have an exact title use a BROWSE TITLE search to find the catalogue record.


Use an AUTHOR search for government agencies and departments, international governmental organizations, public entities, and conferences.


Use a SERIES search for government series numbers such as WRC report numbers,statistical release numbers, command paper numbers, UG and RP numbers.


Use a KEYWORD TITLE search for annual reports, e.g. Annual report South Africa Department Health.

Please ask the Librarians for assistance in using the catalogue.
